Engineering neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptors with functional sensitivity to alpha-bungarotoxin: a novel alpha3-knock-in mouse.


We report here the construction of a novel knock-in mouse expressing chimeric alpha3 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunits with pharmacological sensitivity to alpha-bungarotoxin (alphaBTX). Sensitivity was generated by substituting five amino acids in the loop C (beta9-beta10) region of the mouse alpha3 subunit with the corresponding residues… (More)
